Utah Model for Career Guidance K-12.
Talbot, Walter D.; And Others
A task force consisting of elementary and secondary educators and state board personnel has prepared a model to be used by pilot districts in the development and implementation of a comprehensive, articulated program of career guidance for Grades K-12. Designed as an integral part of the career education model for Utah, the career guidance model presents concepts and developmental objectives at sequential levels of learning (awareness, exploration, and adaption) for three major components: (1) Work and Leisure, (2) Self and Others, and (3) Planning and Placement. Through decision-making, these components are internalized by the individual, resulting in the formation of the emerging self and career identity. This publication constains a description and rationale for the model along with: (1) suggestions for presenting the model to school personnel through workshops, (2) a delineation of the 17 career development concepts and developmental objectives for the 17 concepts, (3) an example of concept expansion for Grades K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12, (4) instructions for writing behavioral objectives, and (5) suggestions for evaluating the program. Also included is a resource section which lists references for each of the 17 career development concepts, sources of occupational information and materials, and suggested equipment and furnishings.
